Do You Crave Colas?
“Many overweight individuals who crave colas take refuge, so to speak, in ‘Diet’ colas. That’s because Diet colas ostensibly do not contain the high-calorie sweetener high-fructose corn syrup. But the next time you reach for one of those ‘smart drinks’, remember one little word – aspartame – and the many diseases you could be inviting.
Researchers and doctors have found that aspartame acts as a slow poison as the side-effects could take several years to manifest themselves. Among the most frequent symptoms are vision loss; memory loss; obesity; testicular, mammary and brain tumors; seizures, coma, and cancer.
Worse still, the symptoms of aspartame poisoning appear to mimic the symptoms of certain major diseases such as fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, lupus, ADHD, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue, and depression. This makes it very difficult to diagnose.
Aspartame is a synergistic methanol poison, and methanol is known to cause serious birth defects and major developmental disorders such as autism and attention deficit in the offspring of aspartame users.
Despite these devastating research and empirical findings, clever advertising campaigns have managed to make the world believe that aspartame and all the other artificial sweeteners are just simple, harmless, food additives that lend foods and beverages a sweet and delicious taste while helping you keep slim, or even shed some extra pounds.
But here is the double-whammy for individuals who are overweight: Not only is Diet soda not a diet product, but a chemically altered, multiple sodium (salt) and aspartame-containing product that actually makes you crave for carbohydrates and gain weight. It contains formaldehyde, which is stored in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and thighs.”
